Ringing in a New Year is always such an exciting time for me as a wedding planner. New clients begin to call and share their exciting holiday engagement stories, as well as begin taking steps towards the planning of their upcoming nuptials. I love the initial phase in the planning process because we … [Read more...]

calendar chalkboard wallies

Rhoda from Southern Hospitality is having a "Best of 2010" party, and since we are just a newborn blog...we didn't have a long lists of posts to put up to show our highlights. But, we linked up our most popular post: Christy's "Week-at-a-Glance" wall calendar in her kitchen that drew rave reviews. A … [Read more...]

Girls in White Dresses (with Red Ball Fringe…)

White Christmas dress with red pompom fringe

  I can only say that inspiration for this little dress for my daughter struck me in the middle of the night.  And, that would be because my social butterfly is "visiting" in the middle of the night, so random things pop into my head as I am up with her at all hours these days! She had … [Read more...]

Holiday Home Tour

  It's just about game time, isn't it? The advent calendar is almost completely open, my cards have mostly been mailed (finally!) and my house is as decorated as it's going to get.

Amy and Terry are off on a Hobby Lobby field trip without me (not that I'm bitter or anything) and so I get to do the post today!  In all seriousness, I don't begrudge them their trip.  They are in Virginia, after all, and I'm in North Carolina, and they have been LIVING WITHOUT A HOBBY LOBBY this … [Read more...]

  We've been partying it up here in North Carolina, and Friday morning was no exception.  My dear friend, Megan, had a Christmas open house at her new house (she moved a few months ago and has been hard at work redoing much of it), and she was kind enough to allow me to bring my camera and … [Read more...]

Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice

cinnamon roll cookie recipe

Every December my neighbor hosts an amazing cookie exchange. I typically scramble to come up with an easy, but tasty treat to share, as baking just isn't my thing. Since we have to bake 8 dozen cookies, (yes, I said 8 dozen cookies), I am always searching for a baking shortcut. I found this cookie … [Read more...]

Its a Wonderful Life…

Local Choirs perform on the Courthouse Steps

What's the saying, if you're lucky enough to live in a small town, you are lucky enough? (OK, maybe that's a liberal interpretation) We really are lucky enough, because we live in a small town outside of a very big city, so we get the best of both worlds. But, no time do I appreciate where I live … [Read more...]

Sparkling Chocolate Holiday Vignette

I am a little late to the party --which if you know me, know that is just so "me" to be fashionably late, but I finally got to some holiday decorating this weekend. As a holiday card designer, this is my busy season and I sometimes miss being able to enjoy the pleasures of the holiday season without … [Read more...]
